Whether you are a kid or an adult, beginner or advanced artist, it’s always fun learning different ways on how to draw a German Shepherd dog or puppy.
Most of the people reading this (like us!), are probably beginners, and need a bit of help and a few tips in learning exactly how to put together a German Shepherd drawing that doesn’t look like scribble.
We’ve gone out and found 7 different ways you can draw a German Shepherd, so you can impress yourself or your friends with your new masterpiece.
PRO TIP (before we get started): the videos can be hard to follow in full speed sometimes. So, go into Youtube, click the little Settings gear icon, click on Speed, and slow the video down to 0.25x speed. You should find it much easier to follow along that way!
